Some Book Figures and Assistance Needed With Announcement
What I thought was interesting was how the sales spread over the three main formats:
Mass market paperbacks - 66,403,000 units
Hardcover - 157,228,000
Trade paperback - 325,789,000
That averages out to approximate three out of every five books sold was a 6x9 trade paperback. For authors and publishers still producing print books, that seems like the smart size to pick right now.
Several people asked how they can help with my upcoming book release. My tour dates are set, but I could certainly use help with announcements. So I’ve decided to make a contest out of it!
Sign up below to announce my book’s release any time between February 5th and 8th and three people will win an e-book copy. I will send out the information, links, and image the week prior.
